The home-academy agreement is part of our Behaviour Management Policy. It is a written statement of the expectations between the parents, the academy and child, to enable successful learning to take place.
Please see front reception in regards to any questions or concerns about this policy agreement.
Open Evenings are held three times a year to enable parents and teachers to meet to discuss their child’s work. At the end of the summer term a full written report is sent to parents.
Parents of children in Year 2 and Year 6 also receive the results of the Standard Assessment Tasks (SATs). The most recent National SATs results as well as those of Tree Tops Primary Academy are available from the Academy Reception.
All children will enter through the corner gate in Wallis Avenue (Meet and Greet playground) which will be opened at 8:45 am. Infant children will wait in the Meet and Greet playground until the second whistle goes at 9 am when they will line up and go in with their class teacher. All teachers will be on duty and therefore we hope that you will have more opportunities to chat with them before the day starts. Infant teachers will be on the corner playground from 8:45 am and junior teachers will rotate so that they all cover a particular area throughout the week. (Some on the corner playground to meet parents, some supervising children walking over to treetops and some on treetops playground).
All late arrivals will have to go to the school office in Brishing Lane.
On rainy days all children will go straight in. They will still enter the academy through the Meet and Greet playground by Wallis Avenue. At the end of the day all infant teachers will take their class out onto the Meet and Greet playground where they will meet their parents.
For Health and Safety reasons, pupils are not allowed to wear jewellery into school. The only exceptions are small stud ear-rings BUT these should be removed for PE lessons. In no circumstances is make-up or nail varnish allowed. Children will be asked to remove this.
If parents are planning to have their children’s ears pierced, please arrange for this to be done at the end of the Summer Term so that there are 6 weeks of school holidays for healing time. Otherwise children will have to be excluded from PE/Games until the earrings can be removed for the lesson.
Parents are asked to co-operate in this matter.
Parents and carers are asked to clearly mark clothes and other property with their child’s name. This is very important. Tree Tops Primary Academy does not accept responsibility for loss or damage to personal property of pupils.
Tree Tops Primary Academy promotes healthy living and free milk is provided for our Nursery children.
Healthy snacks/fruit is given to Reception and Key Stage One children at break times and this is provided free by the Government.
Our Key Stage 2 pupils now have the opportunity to buy the fruit at the cost price of 10p a piece. We receive a selection of good quality fruit each week and sell it at playtime.

“Pupils speak highly about the quality of education they receive. They are very loyal to the Academy, each other and the staff. They appreciate the support they receive to do their best. Pupils’ conduct around the Academy and in class is excellent.”
“Teachers provide highly detailed and effective feedback on a regular basis so that pupils know what they need to do to improve. Pupils regularly respond to marking to ensure they improve upon their understanding. Pupils are now given more opportunities to complete their work fluently and at greater length. Good progress is strongly evident across the books surveyed.”
“Books are well presented and demonstrate that pupils take pride in their work. They contain a varied number of tasks and activities for pupils.”
“Systems to keep pupils safe are rigorous. They feel safer because behaviour has improved and there are good opportunities to learn how to keep themselves safe in different situations.”
